Christmas Special : BRAND’S ESSENCE OF CHICKEN

Hi everyone,
Recently i am coping with my late night, hectic life and tight schedule and to keep my skin nice and my energy level peak, i am glad to have Brand’s Essence of Chicken. Instead of coffee , i am replacing my intake with BRAND’S ESSENCE OF CHICKEN.

They come in the Classic flavour, Tangkwei, cordyceps and american ginseng

My Current favourite is the Classic Flavour and the American ginseng.

Like many of you i used to feel that the taste of the chicken essence was rather strong and i didn’t like it. Little did i found out a method to drink it. The Chicken essence taste better either when it is warm or chill. The Classic Flavour is known for more than 175  years . It is the only scientifically supported Essence of Chicken with more than 30 research papers to date. It is also supported through continuous Brain scientific research at the BRAND’S® Brain Research Centre.

Enhance mental performance

  • Stay switched on and stay open to opportunities
  • The only scientifically supported Essence of Chicken

Brand’s American Ginseng was really effective for tiredness or monday blue. There’s a tint of bitterness however, it is really good and better than coffee. I am pretty impressed by the energy i had throughout the day . The well-proven mental boosting capabilities of BRAND’S® Essence of Chicken is coupled with American Ginseng to enhance memory and overcome the effects of stress. BRAND’S® has created a unique formula to counteract the “coolness” of American Ginseng known in Traditional Chinese Medicine with the “warm” properties of liquorice, resulting in a fairly neutral formulation that is neither too heating or cooling.

Brand’s essence of chicken is handy and i can bring it to work or even a great start as a day supplement.

Improves stamina and boosts energy levels

  • Ideal for modern professionals to relieve fatigue and reach peak performance at work
  • Improves stamina and boosts energy levels
  • Neutral formulation that is neither too heating or cooling according to Traditional Chinese Medicine

  1. What really defines beauty?

The definition of beauty is subjective. There is no scientific explanation for what really defines beauty.

While the hallmark of beauty was once confined to the Golden Ratio (1.61803399) – a mathematical formula to help explain why some people are considered beautiful and others are not – a heritage stemming from the European Renaissance where renowned artists and architects leveraged this equation to map out their masterpieces.

The 21st century definition of beauty has seen an evolution. Going beyond mere physical traits of beauty, more and more women are starting to look at a more holistic way of understanding beauty. Coming into play are factors such as physical wellness, confidence and self-esteem – which are seen as the key to true beauty. According to a study conducted on traits that were most valued in a potential partner on more than 12,000 individuals over more than 30 countries, by Dr. Marcel Zentner, an established psychologist at York University, key insights suggest that men increasingly value intellect and character in a partner over a shapely figure.

  1. How to improve the brains function?

Brain fitness can be defined as the optimal state of cognitive performance. It requires proper and efficient communications among the neurons in the brain.  This depends on the efficiency of the electrical (in forms of action potentials) and chemical (communications among neurons at the synapses, gaps between neurons) signals passing through the neurons. The efficiency of communication in turn depends on the proper structure of the brain (i.e. with sufficient number of neurons and their proper functioning). Therefore, to maintain brain fitness, brain health is important.

To maintain peak cognitive performance, it is first important to have a good and healthy lifestyle that provides us with a balanced diet, sufficient sleep and exercises. This can help to maintain a healthy brain that can perform properly.

Besides, maintaining a mentally active lifestyle is important as it engages our brain to actively acquire and integrate new information from our environment. This is the principle of “use it or lose it”. As we learn, we not only increase in our knowledge, our brain is also changing its very structure and increasing its capacity to learn. Unlike the computer, the brain is constantly adapting itself. The more actively we engage our brain in various cognitive activities (e.g. being active at work, participating and socializing in leisure time), the more efficient our brain will become so that we can learn and perceive with greater precision, speed, and retention of information.

On the other hand, some environmental factors such as chronic stress have negative effects on cognitive performance and can limit the brain from functioning at its optimal condition.

  1. How do male brains differ from female brains?

The overall structures of our brain and the basic cognitive functions are mostly determined by our genes. However, our brain constantly receives information from the environment and is highly capable of fine-tuning its functions to adapt to the environment. Adaptations could be the changes in the number of connections among the neurons (synapses), the amount of neurotransmitters that are responsible for the signal transmissions among the neurons, and the firing frequencies of the electrical signals passing through the neurons. All these determine the final outcome of the cognitive performance. Therefore, environmental factors like diet, enrichment of experiences (e.g. exposure to different learning environments), stress, infections, etc. play an important role influencing our cognitive performance.

  1. What are some of the gendered myths about the brain?

The top 3 gender-related myths about the brain are:

–          Myth 1: Brain size is proportionately linked to intelligence. Women’s brains are typically 8% smaller than the brains of men, so they are considered to be innately less intelligent. However, this is not true as if absolute brain size were all that mattered, large mammals such as whales and elephants – both of which have larger brains than humans – would outwit humans in terms of intelligence.

–          Myth 2: Male and female brains are shaped by their respective “male” and “female” hormones – essentially, that males have generally more testosterone while females have more estrogen. While males generally have more testosterone and females have more estrogen, the truth is that both men and women have both hormones as these hormones have other functions – for example, the female brain requires testosterone to develop and maintain libido while the male brain requires estrogen for normal brain development and sustenance.

–          Myth 3: Men are naturally better in Math and women are naturally better in verbal tasks. This is untrue as the differences seen in such cognitive tests are not a true reflection of innate differences. Instead, other factors come into play – such as the influence of the social environment.

  1. Does brain size really affect one’s intelligence?

No. The cognitive ability is not dependent on the size of the brain.

  1. What are the differences between the left and right brain?

Regardless of personality or skill set, you use both the right and left hemispheres of your brain to perform everyday tasks. Although certain functions, such as speech production, handedness, and facial recognition, tend to be dominated by one side of the brain in the great majority of people, most tasks require parallel input from both hemispheres. The integration of input is made possible by the fiber connections between right and left sides of the brain called the corpus callosum. Unless an entire hemisphere is completely removed or damaged, no one is considered to be fully “right”- or “left”-brained.
